Dewees Double Triple Leads Angels/Cubs over Rangers at Riverview

Donnie Dewees smacked two triples, scored a run, and drove-in another, Yeiler Peguero laced an RBI triple (back-to-back RBI triples with Dewees in a three-run 3rd) and a single, scored a run, and knocked-in a run, Alberto Mineo doubled twice and scored a run, Ian Rice drilled a two-run single, walked, and scored a run, Jason Vosler doubled, walked, and scored a run, Eddy Julio Martinez hammered an RBI double, SP Garrett Richards (on LAA MLB 60-day DL since May with a torn elbow UCL) tossed 2-1/3 innings of perfect baseball, and the bullpen threw four innings of no-hit shutout ball to close the game out, leading the Angels/Cubs co-op team to an 8-4 victory over the Rangers in AZ Advanced Instructional League game action Monday afternoon on Field #1 at the Riverview Baseball Complex in Mesa, AZ.

Yeyson Yrizarri smashed a two-run double to highlight a four-run 5th inning rally and Melvin Novoa and ex-Cub Frandy de la Rosa each singled twice, walked, and scored a run for the Rangers in a losing cause.

Rough day for Cease!

@TheCCO Joe Maddon said @670TheScore 11 pitchers, 14 position players more likely right now for NLDS roster due to the days off in a 5-game series

Likely to announce rotation and roster this afternoon.

This headline is perfect. "Major League Baseball Is About To Get Random" http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/major-lea...

the 2001 mariners agree...

Glad he kept this under wraps for so long...really pulled this out of nowhere

Maddon announces #Cubs rotation for NLDS: Lester, Hendricks, Arrieta, Lackey.

Lester??

I barely care for the NLDS, but based on recent performance, I'll please take Lackey third and Arrieta fourth for the NLCS and WS. I know that's probably controversial, but like it or not, Lackey's just throwing better since the All-Star break. Plus if it's worth anything, he's a known Game 7 commodity, but to be clear I have no doubt about Arrieta in the nerves department.

#sarcasmfont

mets are adding tim tebow to their AFL squad. that should be interesting.

John Fox going out weekly to assist.

this TBS feed needs more bigass bulky graphics. i can almost see the game and that's annoying.

this game is a good postseason warmup. aside from the "thrown beer" incident earlier in the game, and somewhat because of it for some people, the fans are pumping as much life into this game as the players.

tie game, leadoff double bottom 9...electric. ...and it leads to nothing. free playoff baseball!

I can't remember ever seeing beer sold in a can in a US sports arena. Just seems like a really bad idea to give dangerous projectiles to drunk fans.

Wrigley sells soda in plastic bottles. Not beer, of course, but certainly could do damage if someone wanted to toss it.

Flipping between AL Wild Card game and Blackhawks vs Red Wings. 2 on with nobody out in bottom of the 9th, I'm surprised that Britton isn't in the game, even though it's a non-save situation. Only 1 ER since May with your season on the line. I'm surprised. Everybody will be questioning Showalter for not bringing Britton into the game if the Jays walk off. Luckily O'Day got out of the inning, so the Orioles avoid criticism for not bringing Britton in. If it were the Cubs, Chapman should absolutely comes in for that situation.

Preseason hockey?

Time for some free playoff baseball!!!!!! Inb4 more debris gets thrown onto the field. Inb4 game ends with a Jose Bautista walk off HR and bat flip and brawl.

WALK OFF ENCARNACION!!!!! wow! final in 11.

Enjoying the game with my buddy Zack here

Geddy Lee was sitting behind home plate.

Awesome game. Great start to the postseason.

    The decision on the amount comes later.

    At the point when the team makes the initial contract tender, do they have to offer a specific salary, and if so is that the same number the team takes into arbitration? Or does the specific number the teams files at for arbitration happen at a later date?

    jdrnym: A player who is signed to a contract that does not include a minor league split salary is paid his full MLB salary while optioned or after being outrighted to a minor league club.

    So if a player goes to arbitration and is awarded (let's say) a $2.5M salary by the arb panel, the contract will not include a minor league split salary or performance bonuses, and if the player is sent to the minors he is paid the full $2.5M while in the minors.

    Maybe Trump can give them a loan.

    it's not exactly looking good when the cubs brass is complaining about "losing 100m in revenue" when a huge chunk of that seems to include Hotel Zachary.  it looks like the entire "entertainment complex" is the cubs as far as the Ricketts are concerned...and the team might have to suffer a bit because they couldn't fully realize profits last year.  they've publically stated that the big incoming tax credits from the city they're going to realize for stadium work won't help the cubs payroll.

    If a player doesn't have a split salary in his contract, how much is he making when in the minors (or how is that salary determined)?

    we want kyle schwarber to not be mark trumbo so badly...

    either way, the NL having or not having the DH needs to be figured out pretty quickly for a lot of off-season sanity.

    i haven't even heard a rumor...which is interesting since "virtual" winter meetings start in a couple weeks.

    surprised dan kantrovitz hasn't been named "interim GM" or something...which makes me wonder how wide of a net they're casting to fill the position.  he was snagged from the A's and was an assistant GM there (and director of scouting for STL).

    As Jed is promoted to President of Baseball Ops, then when will be expect a formal announcement of who the "official" GM is?

     

  • crunch 3 days 18 hours ago (view)

    there are currently 0 signed...so it's an untapped market ripe for picking the best of the best.

    well, bill 'spaceman' lee is probably out there pitching for a low-level Cuban team being paid in weed or something similar.

    The "Big Three" Cubs first-time Rule 5 Draft-eligibles post-2021 will be RHSP Riley Thompson, 1B-LF Alfonso Rivas, and LHSP Jack Patterson (at least as far as things stand right now), so they will need to be scrutinized as much as possible during the course of the 2021 season (including at MLB Spring Training); That's why those three (in particular) need to get an NRI.
